WESTPORT, Conn., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- At the 2011 Fairfield County Concours, Cadillac, our Premier Automotive Sponsor, will feature six models in their display tent including the CTS-V Coupe, CTS Coupe AWD, Escalade, SRX and CTS Sport Wagon. Our Featured Artist Peter Egan will drive a CTS-V Sport Wagon from his home in Wisconsin to our event and will have it parked next to his display tent. Ride & Drive vehicles are the CTS-V Coupes.
The CTS-V Coupe is the complete package—a stunning, high-performance sport coupe with overt styling and extraordinary capability on the road. The Eaton-supercharged and intercooled 6.2L V8 engine generates a massive 556 horsepower and 551 lb.-ft. of torque. Put the power to the pavement with your choice of an available TREMEC® 6-speed manual shifter or Hydra-Matic 6-speed automatic. Once launched, performance handling is assured by a Nurburgring-tuned® suspension fitted with revolutionary dual-mode Magnetic Ride Control that reacts in the blink of an eye to changing demands. And race-inspired Brembo® disc brakes—6-piston in front, 4-piston in back—deliver massive stopping power. Inside, the driver-centric cockpit features full instrumentation with LED-traced gauges that flash as redline approaches and an available g-meter that communicates lateral acceleration. Available bolstered RECARO® performance seats keep the driver firmly planted during performance driving.
The CTS-V Black Diamond Edition adds a new dimension of brilliance to Cadillac's award-winning V-Series. The exclusive Black Diamond tri-coat paint is the first in North America to incorporate SpectraFlair® bright silver in one of the three layers in the meticulous tri-coating process. The result is a paint that has a diamond-like sparkle as light hits the surface from different angles for added depth and richness—befitting Cadillac. Along with the unique Black Diamond paint, additional features include:
- Satin Graphite 19" wheels with yellow Brembo® brake calipers for a race car appearance
- 14-way power-adjustable RECARO® performance seats with microfiber suede inserts that keep you firmly planted during performance driving
- Exquisite Midnight Sapele wood trim that adds a warm sophistication to the technologically-advanced cockpit
The event has raised more than $100,000 for The Drive to Treat Autism Fund, supporting services for children and adolescents with developmental and Autism Spectrum Disorders through St. Vincent's Behavioral Health Services.
